Collect up all his detritus at the end of the day and empty it on his side of the bed?

I live in a townhouse and never go up or down a stair without taking something.

No one else does this!

Drives me potty

I told my DP the other day that when he comes in from work and leaves his and the kids stuff everywhere it's the equivalent of me going to his office at the end of the day and deleting all his work. It pisses me right off!

DH likes to create little piles of crap - change on the windowsill, opened letters rested on the radiator, coat hung on the back of a chair etc. He honestly thinks that because it isn't on the floor then it is tidy.


welcome to my world sad

Oh YANBU. This also drives me insane. DH and his little piles of change on every shelf, random envelopes dumped all over, keys, pens, cufflinks - aaaargh. And my DD (3.5) is even worse....

And mine , though no dh to clutter up the house, but no need, he taught the kids well enough. Every time he comes down to see the kids he has a coke can in his hand, and everytime he leaves, without fail he leaves it on the dining table.

My dp does this!

I think that he thinks that I'm his mother.

Luckily DP is fairly tidy and does his fair share. I do admit that I'm a clean/neat freak and I don't expect him to live up to my standards, but he does at least put plates in the sink, do laundry, put clothes in the basket/rubbish in the bins and he does all the cooking.

I do often go around after him and make things neater though blush

husband has just ran out of loo roll he put the empty loo roll NEXT TO the bin got a fresh loo roll and put that NEXT to the bin

he also walks past the bin and puts junk mail in the table throws teabags in the sink where they slide under the washing up bowl i then have to clear the sink and encounter something that feels sinister but ends up being a tea bag

today he put dirty socks on even though i had just given him a clean pair i actually called him on it unfortunately i swore at him blush my only excuse is his feet really stink after one day you really dont want it to go two

I can't believe the mess DH and DCs are prepared to tolerate. They just unwrap things and leave the wrappers on the table. Pencils not returned to the box, things not taken upstairs, papers left everywhere. If the Tidying Fairy goes on strike, no one even notices the chaos. Can't stand it.
